An amazing story of survival on Siula Grande (20,848') in the Peruvian Andes in 1985. Winner of the 1988 Boardman/Tasker Mountaineering Literature Award and published in 13 languages. Selected by Outside Magazine as one of the best 25 adventure books of the past 100 years. This scarce first printing has the incorrect ISBN number 0 224 02523 6 on the copyright page. Once the error was caught stickers were created to cover the incorrect number. This copy appears to be prior to that discovery. The dustjacket is also from the first printing as it lacks the newspaper reviews carried by the 2nd printing jackets on the inside flap. A great read.
